It could be a spooky night at the Xcel Energy Center tonight. The Minnesota Wild is coming off a horrible 4-2 loss to the Dallas Stars last night (pathetic game). I am sure Jacques is up in arms and the team is not going to get a lot of rest to get ready for the Montreal Canadiens tonight.
Since it is Halloween Eve, the Minnesota Wild are encouraging costumes for tonight’s game and are giving away prizes to the top three kids including an autographed Minnesota Wild jersey. The top adult will be invited to make the "Let's Play Hockey!" announcement prior to the game. Let’s hope all the ghosts and goblins don’t spook our Minnesota Wild players into submission.
Luckily, Mikko Koivu isn’t spooked easily, he is off to the best start of his career and I am sure he is excited to be playing against his brother Saku Koivu tonight. It is going to be a great match-up at the X tonight and as much as I hate to pin the season on one single game, this could be a real downer for the next few months if the Wild don’t pull off a win.
